Our family loves breakfast! From bacon, egg, and smoked Gouda on a biscuit to pancakes and Belgian waffle. From corned beef hash to Greek omelets and French toast. You name it, we enjoy it! When we left CT, we left a beloved breakfast place, so we’re constantly in search of something comparable. We have Yelp!ed our way to a few favorites in St. Augustine!

Georgie’s looks like a typical old-school New Jersey diner. It’s adorable, and even features outside seating! My husband enjoys the homemade corned beef hash with eggs, a grilled tomato, and a biscuit! My favorite is their Gyro omelet, which I think is the best one in the area … and I’ve tried a few! As for my daughter, she’s a big fan of their Belgian waffle with a side of sausage. Georgie’s Diner is open Sunday through Thursday from 7AM to 9PM and from 7AM to 10PM on Friday and Saturday.

This gem, hidden in Lincolnville, is sandwiched in a residential block. They have reimagined breakfast options in a totally new way! Zada Jane’s Stack with sweet potato home fries, sausage frittata, cheddar, scallions, and a biscuit was my delicious choice. While my daughter opted for the pumpkin pancakes. Hubs tried the corned beef hash again! Parking can be a challenge and there is usually a wait, but it’s worth it.

Blondi’s was one we skipped over for a while since it was right off the highway and in a gas station parking lot. Let me tell you, don’t let the appearance turn you away. Pancakes, omelets, and hash are all delicious and the service is phenomenal.

Sea Oats Caffe is a small place and generally has a wait, but the food is amazing! It has an impressive list of pancake options and add-ons, as well as the normal breakfast fare you expect. I tried the pancakes, but just plain ones; I’m not one for sweet additions other than maple syrup. Can you guess what my husband ordered? We also really enjoyed the surf theme and local artist’s photos featured on the walls.

I’m not usually one for chains or franchises. I prefer small mom and pop eateries. But Metro has a cult following and the food shows you why. My go to is the Greek omelet, without the black olives, while my daughter enjoys the Pigs in a Blanket! My husband usually gets the corned beef hash, big surprise!
